The Highlands County School District in Florida is considering using e-readers to provide digital content to students, as schools make the transition to online resources under a new state law. "There are a lot of positives about eBooks (electronic books); it's just making that leap to being able to provide a device that you can afford for every student," district official Rebecca Fleck said. Officials also say they are concerned about students' access to the Internet at home, an issue one district solved by buying e-readers with 3G technology.
